Null Hypothesis, Ho: Mean pressure applied to the drivers' head during crash test is equal
Mean pressure of compact = Mean pressure of midsize = Mean pressure of fullsize
Alternative Hypothesis, H1: At least one of the mean is different
Rule:
If F is less than Fcrit : Accept null hypothesis
If F is greater than Fcrit: Reject null hypothesis, therefore accept the alternative hypothesis

Decision
Since F is greater than F crit, we reject the null hypothesis
Interpretation:
At least one of the car types exhibits a different mean pressure.
In other words, the performance of at least one type of car on mean pressure applied on the driver's head during crash test
differ from the others.
What if this is the data for the same example?

Since F is less than F crit, we accept the null hypothesis
Interpretation:

on the driver's head during crash test is not significantly different from each other.
